The Big Bend Virtual Field Trip was created for an independent study project for the Texas A&M University Department of Geology under the supervision of Dr. Bruce Herbert. During the week of Spring Break 1996, we visited Big Bend for the purpose of researching the geology of the park and taking pictures of pertinent geologic features. Once all of the pictures and information were compiled, we scanned the images and started construction of the web site.
